I am sure this has been discussed before, but I just am not have ANY luck in searching this out.

I need to do 1/2 white 1/2 choc sheet cake. ( I know, I know some of you don't "DO" sheet cakes. LOL icon_biggrin.gif ) I am guessing there is a pan divider out there, but i just figured you creative ladies have come up with some other was to accomplish this.

Thanks for any help you can give. I love to read and expand my knowledge through all of you!

I am finally getting ready to start my first ever decorating classes. SOOOO excited! Anyone have input to the classes from Country Kitchen Sweet Art in Fort Wayne, Indiana? I just can not wait to start!

Sorry so long! And thanks for the help!

I've done this - I made my own divider out of aluminum foil and just removed it after I had both sides filled. Don't leave it in to bake - the flavors won't run together.

I do this all the time, you don't need any special equipment. Make both batters, get the pan ready and rest one end of the pan on a plate or even folded dish towel and pour the batter in the opposite end (the low end). Remove the support and quickly pour the other batter on the other side and the 2 batters will meet in the middle. This only works if the batters have similar baking times

I am doing the same cake. Since I am new I don't have a sheet pan so I am just baking a 1/2 sheet white and 1/2 sheet chocolate and putting them together. There isn't really anything going on top so I figured it would work out ok. They both have different fillings as well. I am guessing that the hardest part would be getting them even!

its really great if you have another person to be pouring one batter in pne end as you are doing the other simultaneously. If you can cut a wedge of cake board to fit in the middle you can pour one side then the other yourself, I do this alot

I agree with Kimmers, I've done this before and it works great.
Good luck!! icon_smile.gif

You don't need a divider. It's batter, not Kool-Aid. It won't run into each other and blend. The batter will meet in the middle and stop (like lava).

I can't remember the last cake I made that WASN'T half-n-half.

Turn a saucer upside down on the counter, or place a rolled-up towel down. Set one end of the pan on this to elevate it. Pour the first flavor in the lower end of the pan. Then add the 2nd flavor, lowering the pan from the elevated state.

Bingo Bango ready for the oven!

Debi -- just noticed your title. When did they add the category of "forum matriarch"? I'm laughing -- couldn't you talk them into "forum queen" or "czarina"? Something with a little royal cache?

Here's a video that shows you how to do it:

I did this for the first time about a month ago. It's SUPER EASY!

Thanks to all for the replies! I really thought this would work, but I just wondered if it seemed "to easy" of an answer. Glad I was on the right track.

Well here I go.... hope it works!

Thanks again, you are all the BEST! My I become a fraction as talented as you.
